Who Is Jesus?

Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:  Colossians 1:15

Who is Jesus? Seems like a simple question, but this topic has divided religions, families, and nations. In Colossians Paul gives a perfect description of who Jesus is. How does Paul know? Because he met Jesus face to face on the Road to Damascus.

First we learn Jesus is the image of God, The Word became Flesh and dwelt among us. Remember Jesus said he and God are one, this is the Trinity.  Nobody gets to God without going thru Jesus because Jesus is God in the Flesh.

For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. Colossians 1:16-17

We learn two more things from these scriptures.

  1. Jesus created The Heavens and The Earth
  2. Jesus is King of Kings and rules over all nations and governments

Notice this scripture says all things were created by him, this corresponds with John 1:1 “In the beginning was The Word, and the Word was with God and The Word was God “

Jesus is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. He was here before everything and he will be here evermore. He is sitting on the throne and rules The Earth.

 

And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; Colossians 1:18-19

Jesus is the head of the Church, there is no other man or authority above him.  If you’re not following his Word you’re following a false religion. If it’s not in The Bible it a man made doctrine or ritual

And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. Colossians 1:20

Jesus came down to Earth, lowered himself to become an atonement sacrifice for our sins.  He loves us enough to leave his throne as King and become The Lamb of God.  There is no greater love than this.

Read these scriptures, meditate on these scriptures, this is who Jesus is. He is the same today, yesterday, and forever in Jesus Name Amen

    Thank you for the condescending Um. I wasn’t condemning the author of this post. I was stating a fact about the Holy Roman Church’s decision to make Jesus God in 300 AD. Athanasius and Arius used the same scripture passages to come up with opposing theories. Christians belief that Jesus is God is all about politics. I’m truly sorry if that offends some people. I really am.
